Air Dog 2 Questions????

For those of you running the Air Dog 2 DF-165, how are you installing these? What I mean is what are you doing about the upper engine filter and regulator assembly? It says nothing about it in the instructions and it seems redundant to have a pump that is regulated and a regulator on top of that. Can you just pull the filter out and run it that way? I have the blue spring upgrade all ready but I dont know if am suposed to leave that in or what. Any help would be great. Thanks.

I think you pull the regulator guts out and filter out. The fuel then runs through the empty components. The airdog has a regulator right?

Thank you both for the replies. Thanks Lilpooh for the links. I dont think at this time I want to completly delete the fuel bowl. I more or less just want the air dog to regulate the system, and I dont understand the cutting of the coke can in the second link to eliminate the factory FPR. Any more help would be greatly appreciated.

To stop the oem fpr from functioning you have to block the oem return line from the oem fpr. Cutting a disk the size to fit in the return line provides a block off. Think of a washer with no hole in it. You just need to block off the return flow from the oem fpr. A coke can, beer can, whatever is handy and make a block off to fit the return line fitting at the fpr.

On my Ex I used a "no tank drop" fuel sump because it was such much easier. Sumps will make sure your AD always has a good supply of fuel. http://www.alligatorperformance.com/...?cPath=192_309

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.
